Hi everyone!

After reading JesseC92's post on his OMR fender eliminator, I decided to take the jump and buy one. Thanks again, JesseC92! If you hadn't shared, I wouldn't have known this existed, and I'd still be rocking the stock tail.

My thoughts:

The good:
-Looks awesome. Can't see the signals until they're turned on (smoke on the LED arrows), so it's a very sleek unit.
- it's BRIGHT, uses the stock license plate light, so it's all very visible. All LED so hopefully no light failures.
-kit has adapters to plug into factory harness, and the mounting bracket is a nice unit (mounts into the exhaust cover and passenger foot-pegs) that includes a spot for the license plate light.

The not-as-good:
No instructions, but luckily not rocket science to install. Just take your time.
Be careful: I broke a positive connection to one of the turn signals, but I was able to sauter it back together!

Overall I'm super happy with the unit. Glad I waited for this one.

To all you guys installing the OMR fender eliminator, please report back if you experience any issues with the electrics being so close to the heat.
This is my only concern with this tail tidy.

Looks great!

@ adrian7: That is a concern I have too. Haven't gotten to put many miles on the bike since install, but after about 60+ miles in one day, it seems to hold up. I'll be monitoring it and will give any feedback.

@ ma959: Mine took about a week. I never got an actual shipping confirmation from them, and it showed up on the Friday or Saturday after I ordered. Hope you like!

The turn signals on the plate mount...are they in conjunction with the taillight or are they the only indicators?

@ NSWDBG: No, they're not in conjunction with the tail lights, I just took those pics with the key on + hazards flashing, and managed to get lucky with the timing.

@ adrian7: update on the heat concern! I did 110 miles of riding yesterday, mix of low speed/city driving and some quick sprints. Was able to check the unit a few times at stops: no issues or heat soak to speak of!

Another good follow up: my riding buddy yesterday really liked the visibility of the signals, even 100+ yards back in broad daylight!

Thanks for the updates.
This definitely seem like a good option for a tail tidy.
Whole thing is plug and play yeah?

Correct, no splicing needed. The kit has the wires coming from the license plate bracket, and banana plugged wires with oem connector on the other sire, which will plug into the oem wiring harness.

Plate with wires > banana plugged wires > oem harness.

Seems like an extra step, but I'm guessing the kit includes their universal plate + wiring for the Duc harness.

Its not bad, but I still think the NRC units have a nicer design, and truly plug and play fitment.
-I'd say its plug-and-play, just with an extra plug to play with :wink2:

- I like the NRC design too, and have no doubt it's a quality unit. I just felt the aesthetics were a little awkward. Something like that is completely subjective though; I personally feel the NRC detracts from the tail lights a little bit, but it's not a bad choice at all. Glad I waited for the OMR on my bike, but can see where others are happy with the NRC. Either one is a big improvement over what comes from the factory.

Depends on taste I guess.
Maybe not everyone looking for a fender eliminator is interested in the NRC "strip" blinkers.
I prefer one of the integrated blinker/taillight systems

Yup, as both said, it is totally subjective, it all comes down to taste.

Just bought the same kit. What tool did you used, to get 2 bolts under the heat shield? I removed the fender for some more clearance, but still got in the way.

Sorry for the delayed reply, did you get to figure it out?

I don't remember those bolts being too much of a pain. I feel like I got at it with a socket wrench + short extension., but I'd have to check it out tonight to remember...

Yep figured, picked up a set of normal hex keys, my socket body is too big for the opening on the left side, a slim hex key works wonder. Thanks.

*As for the kit. They looks great, but don't like how the wires hanging out from the back of signal lights, haters can cut/pull them right out.
